Re: US Election 2016

I think this analysis is interesting.
It suggests Trump writes his angry tweets himself on his Samsung whilst the more presidential tweets are sent from his team on an iPhone. http://varianceexplained.org/r/trump-tweets/

Re: US Election 2016

What's happened to all that anti-Trump social unrest we were told was sweeping America? Maybe it's gone the same way that all the xenophobic attacks, which we were told would result from the referendum result, went eh? How very odd...

Re: US Election 2016

That isolated unrest which was completely peaceful and resulted in arrests because they were smashing shops to pieces and weren't actually protesting anything but rather using it as a reason to loot and cause riots because they're just thugs and couldn't actually care less about who was President? Those guys?

Or there was the bunch of drunk students chanting crap whilst marching down the street.. again the majority just doing it for what they described as the 'lulz'

Completely swept the nation and North Korea were luckily on hand to launch there 600MT Nuke to protect the world and stop it spreading.

Thankfully it appears American media sources can be horribly wrong and completely OTT and full of it.

There's a few episodes of South Park that cover these events pretty amazingly with the same level of sarcasm I've used vs reality of the situation.

People can't have they level of anger and activity for long. They released the worst of it those weekends but constant riots were unlikely.

These kinds of divisions don't disappear though. America is still very divided, dangerously divided, and it's going to be a problem. The same applies here. There is deep division and anger in people and it's concerning.

Let's hope he doesn't have a 'total war' app on his Samsung. He'd probably forget which side he's on...

Yes, because the best way to communicate to other governments and set national and international policy is by sending 140 characters at 3am in the morning..

You say 'refreshing', I say 'egotistical and unthinking'...

I think that this said it all for me. And don't forget during his campaign Trump did say ' lets wait and see, what the result will be'

I have a sneaky feeling, that he knew what was happening.

He will be causing unrest in USA. Especially with what is happening with Mexico

Re: US Election 2016

The only person who affected Hillary's chances, was Hillary herself. She is the one who is as bent as they come, she is the one who led disastrous policies as Secretary Of State. The DNC backed the wrong candidate and they could have had Bernie Sanders, but no, they stitched him up by rigging the Primaries to get who they thought was their star candidate. Backfired big time and it served them right in the end.

Re: US Election 2016

Obviously, all the US Intelligence agencies are lying, and Putin and Assange are America's best friends, and have long been it's strongest supporters, with never a bad word or action to undermine it...

Denial much?

Trump is far too arrogant to backtrack after all the tweets he put out defending Putin and the Russian regime

Hillary was a high-risk choice but the hacking helped support the branding of her as Crooked Hillary. That must have been worth some votes.

But I'm sure Trump will be keen for this to be buried and he's masterful at setting the news agenda, so won't need to backtrack.
